Eurasiatic: *matV
Meaning: intoxication
Indo-European: *mad-, *mat-
Dravidian: *mads-
Comments: Among the Drav. reflexes is hidden a root *mad- 'to become fat' - which is compared (ND 1501 *mAṭV 'to increase, make long/broad') with Georg. maṭ- 'become larger' (+ Arab.?); cf. perhaps also IE *mazd- (*mad-t-) 'fat'. Cf. *mVtV 'moisture'.
